The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin loves to use the phrase “the walls are closing in” on President Trump.
The problem is every time she uses this they never do and now she is being mocked for essentially “crying wolf.”
According to Fox News:
Rubin, an MSNBC contributor who describes herself as a “conservative opinion writer,” has become a celebrity among liberal circles in recent years for expressing her disdain for the sitting Republican president. In her latest column, she celebrated the decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals in the 4th Circuit to revive an emoluments lawsuit against the Trump Organization for allowing foreign governments to conduct business with Trump’s hotels.
“The walls are closing in on Trump’s lawless presidency. The only question is whether the voters will remove him before he is forced to unveil his finances, which he has strenuously attempted to conceal from voters,” Rubin wrote. “One can only imagine what secrets are so damaging that Trump is compelled to litigate up and down the federal courts.”
However, according to Rubin, the walls have been “closing in” on President Trump for a long time.
In May 2017, the Washington Post columnist similarly declared “The walls are closing in on the scandal-plagued president” after the firing of FBI Director James Comey sparked an outcry from several Republicans at the time like Justin Amash, Jeff Flake, John Kasich, and the late John McCain.
Now for the mockery:

Are you intentionally just recycling the same articles and headlines every month or so?
Because I can’t help but notice you’re just recycling the same article and headline every month or so. For the past 3+ years. ?

Maybe she is hoping that if she says it enough one day she might be right.
